CNCF’s flagship event will bring together thousands of open source and cloud native enthusiasts
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – August 30, 2023 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, announced the schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2023, happening in Chicago, Illinois, and virtually from November 6 – 9.
Exactly seven years after the inaugural KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2016 event in Seattle, the conference is back in the United States with a stellar lineup curated by event co-chairs – Aparna Subramanian, of Shopify, Frederick Kautz, and Nikhita Raghunath of VMware. With the help of the program committee consisting of 119 community members and 22 track chairs, they have reviewed an incredible 1871 submissions – the most to date – to develop a diverse and informative schedule this year. Attendees will be able to choose from 196 sessions, keynotes, lightning talks, and breakout sessions both in-person and virtually, with 97 CNCF project maintainer-hosted sessions featuring content that will appeal to technologists across industries and experience levels.
“With Kubernetes crossing the chasm, we are now truly in the era of enterprise considerations and innovative tech. There is an increased focus on security, availability, and cost-efficiency. At the same time, cutting-edge work and research into fields like AI, WASM, and environmental sustainability have been breaking new ground,” said Nikhita Raghunath, Staff Software Engineer, VMware, and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Co-Chair. “With all the wonderful talks that dive deeper into all of these topics, I hope that you can take away key learnings on how to architect the future of your cloud native platforms and journeys! Come to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon and witness the next generation of cloud native!”
